Ashoka A warm welcome from a fellow Rasika(joined in 2009).Let me say this. I am in my Seventies and I have been a passionate lover/listener of CM for over 6 decades and I can BOLDLY assert that I have learnt from this Forum in 4 years far more than what I have absorbed in the previous 60 odd years!!
By all means browse thro all the topics--if you are a new listener and want to know about Ragas or Krithis there are topics devoted to these subjects besides many. I can assure you even after 4 years of active participation there are many areas that I have not been able to explore--so vast is this treasure trove of know;ledge.

The moderators and the contributors--too many to be named individually --are doing an outstanding job of steering discussions on various topics without any censorship. Take advantage of this site. This is the BEST CM sites that I have come across!!

Again WELCOME!! let us know your interests and there will be forumites ready to enthral you!!!

Dear all,

it's always been a pleasure and enlightening to read this forum. My participation has been more passive, although I have written a few reviews from last year's concerts. Since I never got to say a formal hello, let me take this thread up to say a big hello and namaste to all the members, rasikas, music lovers and seasoned performers here.

I have been dormant in the performance circle for more than 25 years for various lame reasons..and so instead of regretting it, I have mustered some courage and drawn much inspiration from Carnatic fora like these and others, to resume my lessons with Savita Narasimhan and have been a novice performer for about a few months now. Still a lifetime(s) to learn and perfect the art. But I have realized that it is never too late.

Here is a playlist from one of my recent performances at the Fremont (California) Margazhi Utsavam 2014..

Seeking all your best wishes and blessings,

TN Arunagiri.

Sri Arunagiri: Your singing is quite excellent and professional. Gaja vadana was quite dynamic and energetic. You have a good voice and CM sounds great in that timbre. The accompanists also did a great job. I will listen to the rest of the songs later.

Congrats on restarting your musical lessons with Smt. Savita Narasimhan . All the best for a great performing career.

I also listened to the first kirtanam "Gaja vadana" - very well sung - good support from Pakkavadyams too. Welcome back as an active participant in this forum.

tanaap,
Another performing member among us!
You have a pleasing voice and a good vazhi ( good school of singing). Your svarams in gaja vadana were very good and could hear the pleasant violin sound there! Also heard a bit of naTTaikuRinji rAgA.

The best to you!
